The U.S. U-17 Men's National Team opened up its CONCACAF qualifying campaign with a 5-0 thrashing of Jamaica on Saturday.

The U.S. looked strong out of the gate, pressing far up the pitch and putting numbers forward in the attacking third. The U.S. midfield looked strong as it controlled the tempo of the match, and did well to keep the shape of the 4-4-2 formation that coach John Hackworth deployed.

If my eyes do not deceive me, we get Ream in for Brooks (as some of you guessed), Zusi in for Cameron (oi vey) and Jones in for Lletget. So is this the same set as Friday, or does Jones slide Pulisic wide, giving us a 4-2-3-1 or an empty bucket? We shall see. Three points is nice, but how about we #Get3More?

With all the missing regulars, am I being greedy to want a win in Panama? Four more players, including starting left center back John Anthony Brooks, have been released to their clubs. Only Paul Arriola has been added to the mix, so the USMNT now has 23 guys available for selection on Tuesday. You may know them as.
